The normal adult dose of the prescription medication amiloride is one 5 mg. tablet daily. Your doctor may increase the daily dosage depending on your symptoms and initial results. For example, in severe cases of hypokalemia that are not affected by the initial recommended dose, your doctor may increase daily dosage up to 15 or 20 mg. per day. Carefully monitor any dosage increases with your doctor to watch for possible side effects. You must always take amiloride with food.
